Celtic sweating over Burke injury

Celtic sweating over Burke injury Oliver Burke could be ruled out of Celtic’s Europa League tie with Valencia on Thursday night after suffering a suspected twisted ankle, as per a report from The Daily Record. The attacker produced an excellent display during the Hoops’ 5-0 victory against St Johnstone on Sunday, assisting Scott Sinclair twice, and has impressed following his loan move to the club from West Brom in the January transfer window. Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers could be without the forward for the first leg of their Europa League clash with Valencia, though, as the squad’s injury list continues to grow.

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed that Valencia defenders will be frightened of Oliver Burke’s pace.

The Hoops host Spanish side Valencia at Celtic Park on Thursday in the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie.

Burke was an injury doubt heading into the game, after he limped off the pitch against St. Johnstone at the weekend.

Brendan Rodgers watched his side win 5-0 in the Scottish Cup, but will have been concerned as his striker was forced off with an injury.

However, speaking to The Daily Record, Rodgers said this

How confident are Celtic fans ahead of Valencia clash?

How confident are Celtic fans ahead of Valencia clash? This Thursday, Celtic will battle it out in the first leg of the Europa League last 32. They are facing Spanish heavyweights Valencia, who Brendan Rodgers believes are the fourth biggest team in their country. It will be a massive achievement for Celtic to proceed to the last 16 with such a large tie standing in their way. Celtic have started 2019 brilliantly so far, playing seven games, scoring 21 goals and conceding zero. The January transfer window has definitely improved the team. They have brought in reinforcement in defence with Jeremy Toljan joining on loan from Dortmund until the end of the season.

The Defenders are a loosely organized team of fictional characters mostly, but not solely, superheroes in the Marvel Universe. For much of their history, there was no official membership. Thus, the Defenders had a reputation as being a non-team, a term which was coined in the pages of the comic.

“Oli took a knock to his ankle. We hope he’ll be okay. You see his intensity and the threat he gives us. He was absolutely fantastic. He should be okay for Thursday.”

“Oli has shown and started to progress as we thought he could. He has wonderful attributes and his pressing sets a real tone.”

“He’ll be difficult to play against because the one thing that frightens defenders is pace”

The on-loan West Brom forward has managed three goals and two assists in his seven appearances for Celtic so far in all competitions.

Rodgers showed his lack of European pedigree against Valencia.
Celtic’s home defeat to Valencia on Valentine’s Day wasn’t a massacre, but it certainly drove a dagger into the hearts of fans across the globe. The manager was understandably bullish before kick-off about his side’s prospects against a side that some in the media had made out to be tired, and there for the taking. Yet, except for the first 10-15 minutes, the Spaniards cruised through this match against a team that was surprisingly predictable. Why was this the case? The home side had enjoyed a good run of results since the turn of the year, winning every game with no goals conceded.
